PGC-1? Gene Therapy Slows Alzheimer's Progression in Mouse Model

It is always a good idea to look closely at the biochemistry involved in any potential Alzheimer's disease therapy that shows promise in mouse models. There is perhaps more uncertainty for Alzheimer's than most other age-related conditions when it comes to the degree to which the models are a useful representation of the disease state in humans - which might go some way towards explaining the promising failures that litter the field.
